    I went to toss them cranberries yesterday, we had extras after making homemade cranberry sauce & salad and they were gone before they hit the ground. Then the chickens realized I had more in the bowl and came after me. I tossed the bowl and ran the other direction. Been there before, I really don't like being covered with chickens who are trying to land on me to get to the treat first.
